UN official: Mladic threatened to kill civilians
A former United Nations official in Bosnia says Gen Ratko Mladic threatened to kill civilians in a chilling foreshadowing of the Srebrenica massacre.
David Harland, the second prosecution witness to testify at the former Bosnian Serb military chief`s UN trial, said today he met often with Mladic during the 1992-95 war and noticed him becoming increasingly belligerent as the conflict drew on, including threatening to kill civilians in the UN-protected enclaves which included Srebrenica.
Mladic is accused of crimes including genocide for allegedly masterminding the 1995 massacre of some 8,000 Muslim men in Srebrenica.
Harland`s testimony is key to prosecutors because he regularly met Mladic and can provide an insight into his actions and motivations.
